A state trooper pulled a woman from a smoldering car after she crashed into a tollway median near Halsted Street on Interstate 294 in the south suburbs, according to authorities.

East Hazel Crest Fire Capt. Kevin Vallow said the trooper's actions probably saved the woman's life. "It could have burst into flames, it could have been much (more) dangerous than what it was," he said.

The 24-year-old Harvey woman was unresponsive when the trooper approached the car. She was taken to Ingalls Hospital in Harvey, then to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said. Her condition wasn’t immediately available.

I Voted For Obama said...

Since this woman was from Harvey, it is unrefutable that she voted for Obama. Obama will give the state trooper an award for saving one of his voters.

Trooper wasn't named yet, but his history of actions shows he made a good choice of a career.

Proud to have him on the team.
